Matt Rowe


The great trumpet player, Herb Alpert, is joined by his wife, the singer best known for her hits with Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66, Lani Hall on a Live set called Anything Goes.  The set is performed at a series of small venues going from one coast to the other with 14 performance tracks the end result.

The performed songs are intimate in the small clubs, a fact you can pick up on immediately from the very first track, "Fascinating Rhythm".  All songs are American standards that are provided the familiar, yet warmly inviting sound of Alpert's trumpet and Lani Hall's powerful voice.

Many of the songs are easily remembered.  Great tunes like "That Old Black Magic," "It's Only a Paper Moon," and "Anything Goes" are on here with other gems like "Morning Coffee," and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face".  

There are more great tunes on this spontaneous package of Live tracks that will easily appeal to fans of the trumpeter, as well as fans of the voice if his wife.  The interaction between these two and their band is fun to follow.
